Mexican Society of Biomedical Engineering (SOMIB)
This year’s HTM Association of the Year, NESCE, exemplifies all the qualities this award seeks to promote, including outstanding society operations and meetings, as well as a commitment to elevating the HTM field on a local level.
This year’s winner, the Mexican Society of Biomedical Engineering (SOMIB) has served HTM students, BMETs, managers, and administrators for more than 43 years, promoting the field throughout Mexico and Latin America. It is touted as a
“bridge” between prospective HTM professionals and healthcare organizations, a prolific educator through workshops and forums, and a reliable supporter of research initiatives.
“It is a great honor to receive this distinction from AAMI, an internationally recognized association committed to promoting and growing the healthcare technology management profession,” said SOMIB president Herberth Bravo Hernández. “This award is the result of the effort and dedication of a great team at SOMIB. I want to extend this recognition to each of them; as well as for all the HTMs and Biomedical Engineers in Mexico who have given their best effort, commitment, and dedication in this pandemic, as well as for those colleagues who have unfortunately lost their lives. It is a great pride for me to receive this recognition as president of the largest and oldest Society of Biomedical Engineers in Mexico; without a doubt, this entrusted responsibility will be a milestone in my professional life.”
